It it a manual or automatic trans?
It is a manual.
The only way to tell if it will fit is to lay them side by side to check the length and the spline count ( input shaft spline and output shaft spline ) because in 1997 there was two different engine options and in 1998 only one engine was offered.
How about the bolt pattern
yes double check the bolt pattern and any plugs or switches just to make sure its the same
Thanks for the help. I'll let u know what happens.
